EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings have dropped quarterback John David Booty from the practice squad to make room for a new offensive lineman.
Booty was a fifth-round draft pick out of USC last year. He spent his rookie season as the third quarterback, but he became expendable when the Vikings signed Brett Favre in August.
Oldenburg will give the team a little more depth on the offensive line while starting right tackle Phil Loadholt tries to work through an ankle injury.
